HughBe--- You CORRECTED me in the same way that your masters CORRECTED the scriptures thousands of years later.
Once more--what is genetics? Is it BIOLOGY ? What is the meaning of MIXTURE? Could it be the combination of two or more things?
So you speak of MIXTURE and part of that MIX is RACE/genetics
You know, posting the same post twice or even three times does not suddenly make the post all of the sudden relevant.

Frijoles---Well, you wouldnt call them "Jews" if there wasnt something ethnically or religiously distinct about them in the first place.
HughBe--- Indeed there is something DISTINCT about them i.e. RACE. In the same way we call other Jamaicans; Indians, Chinese, Syrians etc. in other words we identify them in terms of their ancestry.
Frijoles---Once again, you are living in your head with your own private rules and vocab
HughBe--- BS noted. Now, ADDRESS the outstanding matters below.
HughBe--- what is genetics? Is it BIOLOGY ? What is the meaning of MIXTURE? Could it be the combination of two or more things?
So you speak of MIXTURE and part of that MIX is RACE/genetics.
Frijoles---Hence the term ETHNO-RELIGOUS....
HughBe--- BS. It is a tool that is used to enslave others. I have demonstrated this countless times. You shall now be given the opportunity to do it yourself.
Tell me about the RELIGIOUS beliefs of atheists, agnostics and other secular or non-RELIGIOUS Jews.
HughBe---Do you suppose that the Jews in Jamaica observe the culture of Jamaica? What is culture?
Reconcile your make-believe with the reality.
Ditto for that part

Please move on with new material

HughBe--- Please, let us stick to my simple questions. Please respond to them. Once again,reconcile your "ethnoreligious" with atheists Jews.
Former--Atheist Jews are no longer ethnoreligious Jews.
HughBe--- In other words YOU are unable to reconcile atheists Jews with your FOOLISH idea that Jews are an ethnoreligious group. Now, do you really understand your words? Do you understand that I am and have been saying that being Jewish is NOT a ethnoreligious matter? You have just said the same thing without understanding it. List the elements of ethnicity and apply them to atheists Jews in the US.
You know, FR and I have explained this - we have posted links - we have explained this- we have posted links - we have provided examples - we have posted links that have provided examples - we have reexplained this

I think we (or I at least) are done

If you cant admit to grasping the concept, that is your PERSONAL issue. The rest of the world apparently has no problem with the concept.

Nothing in that above verbiage contradicts the definition I posted
As of your comment about unified - I am not aware of any other religion except Judaism that Jews practice. Maybe you have another religion in mind?
Frijoles, the Jew, said-- I am not aware of any OTHER religion except Judaism that Jews practice.

HughBe--Let me teach him about Jews and American Jews in particular. The Jews in my quote are called American a term that is not applicable to Frijoles plus they live in the coutry of his birth and where he lives YET he does NOT know of ANY other religions of Jews.

This is what I speak of, DECEPTION and LIES of his religion Judaism.

The quote says that JEWS are flocking EASTERN religions? YES. Read the quote below. They are JEWS and they do NOT practice JUDAISM instead they practice Eastern RELIGIONS.

Quote is taken from My Jewish Learning.

"In the last several decades, countless Westerners have turned to Eastern religions for inspiration and spirituality. JEWS have been no different. Many American JEWS flocked to Eastern religions as part of the hippy counter-culture of the 1960s and 1970s, and today, India and Thailand are havens for Israelis seeking to explore other cultures and religions"

BTW, not that I ever expect you to grassp subtlety, especially since you apparently are incapable of grasping even the fundamentals, but the term often used for those type of JEWS is BuJew or Buju or Jubu or Jewbu .

Note the "Jew" part of the term

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jewish_Buddhist
Jewish Buddhist

A Jewish Buddhist (also Jewbu or Jubu or Buju) is a person with a Jewish background who practices forms of Buddhist meditation and spirituality. The term Jubu was first brought into wide circulation with the publication of The Jew in the Lotus (1994) by Rodger Kamenetz.
In some cases, the term can refer to individuals who practice both traditions; in other cases, "Jewish" IS NO MORE THAN AN ETHNIC DESIGNATION where the person's main religious practice is Buddhism.
In yet other cases, a Jubu is simply a Jew with an interest in Buddhism. A large demographic of Jewish Buddhists, constituting its majority, still maintain religious practices and beliefs in Judaism coupled with Buddhist practices and perhaps beliefs.

just addressed that

the short of it, as long as someone calls them "Jews" there is some ethnicity involved. Or you (or them) wouldnt call them "Jews" in the first place.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ethnoreligious_g...

Ethnoreligious communities define their ethnic identity neither exclusively by ancestral heritage nor simply by religious affiliation,

but often through a combination of

a long shared history;
a cultural tradition of its own;
either a common geographical origin, or descent from a small number of common ancestors;
a common language, not necessarily peculiar to the group;
a common literature peculiar to the group;
a common religion different from that of neighbouring groups;
being a minority or being an oppressed or a dominant group within a larger community.

Thats not the question we are discussing. The question IS what makes these people Jewish?

Answer: Posted in above post

Even A Bhuddist Jew is a Jew IF they still retain some of those traits from the list - ethnicity being the most difficult to loose of course (Cant change who your parents are)

Yet yesterday or very recently YOU said "I am NOT aware of any OTHER religion EXCEPT Judaism that Jews practice. "

Why the LIE? Why the deception? YOU knew very well that you were LYING.

In essence your OTHER lie that Jews are an ethnoreligious group is the construct of Satan.

I think the more valid construct in this case is what is intelligence?

Why the invective?

What does Satan have to do with it? We are trying to be logical here.

As far as the "I am NOT aware of any OTHER religion EXCEPT Judaism that Jews practice. " obviously sarcasm is not one of your strongest pursuits. If you recollect, you have stated often that there is such thing as "Christian Jews". That was in response to that.

It is nearly impossible,(in fact it IS impossible) to discuss subtlety with you. If it wasnt, perhaps we could go into a deeper discussion on how a Jewish Bhuddist (or Hindu or etc etc...)is usually really more Jewish in religion than Bhuddist, but frankly, considering what I have to work with (YOU!) that would be a waste of time.

yes, i have addressed that already. These are ethnic Jews who (see above) arguably can often still retain many aspects of their jewish religion even When they practice eastern religion, or maybe not if they never had the fundamentals of the Jewish religion in the first place.

Hence the TERM JUBU

HughBe--- YOU are confused, my son. YOU said "Jews are am ETHNO-RELIGIOUS group " and that is a QUOTE. Now explain your words.

My point is that they are NOT and that Jews had a Jewish IDENTITY before they Got "Judaism". They had a Jewish IDENTITY when God made a covenant with them.

History is on my side while stupidity is on your side and of course self-deception.

Frankly the only chance you have on this subject - would be to revert back to your make believe personal vocab (judaites, overlord, etc).
